Tenuta Argentaia – Magliano in Toscana - Tuscany
4 Suites – 2 Bedrooms – Pool – Spa - Gym
Location and Surrounding Area. This superb hillside estate lies immersed in the spectacular scenery of the Maremma. It is only 20 minutes from the sea and offers breathtaking views across the water to the islands of Giglio and Montecristo in the distance. This area of coastal Tuscany has been an elite destination for years and the rolling hills and olive groves set against the azure waters of the Mediterranean have a calming effect on both body and soul. The property stands in 80 hectares of immaculate grounds, ancient vineyards, olive groves and woodland. The private stables have beautiful horses belonging to the owner so why not try exploring the Maremma in the traditional way, on horseback? The Maremma is famous for its butteri, Tuscan cowboys who, until fairly recently, drove the Maremma cattle on horseback. If you're really lucky, you'll even see some of the indigenous wild horses galloping along the beach at sunset.
Magliano in Toscana is a delightful example of a walled hamlet and dates back to Etruscan times. The earliest parts of the stone walls were constructed around the year 1000 A.D. and the fortified encirclement underwent a meticulous restoration in 1999. You'll find a historical centre full of superb photographic opportunities and buildings of architectural and historical interest. Take a walk along the ramparts to gaze out over the sea and then kick back and relax at one of the restaurants specialising in local delicacies such as vegetable or fish soups, game and wild boar dishes. Don't forget that the region is also famous for its cold-pressed olive oil, exceptional wines, cheeses, cold meats, truffles, mushrooms and chestnuts.
Punta Ala is an elegant coastal resort, frequented by expensive yachts and offers both excellent restaurants and a glamorous nightlife. In fact, the Maremma region boasts various Michelin starred restaurants as well as hundreds of quaint, family-run trattoria. There are wide, sandy beaches near Punta Ala and the pine clad hills lead right down to the water in places. The nearby Monte Argentario area is also surrounded by splendid beaches, picturesque sandy coves and flat rocks that are perfect for sand-free sunbathing and snorkelling. Cala Piccola is one such delightful bay with pebbles and turquoise water. Some of the other beaches are accessible by car, some by foot and some only via boat. La Feniglia Nature Reserve offers 7km of dunes and fine sand leading right down to the Mediterranean Sea. Try the pebbly Cala del Gesso or the Pozzarello beach with its easy access from the road and then chill out at one of the surrounding bars or restaurants. The seven islands of the Tuscan Archipelago; Elba, Giglio, Capraia, Pianosa, Giannutri, Gorgona and the nature reserve of Montecristo, with its legends of Alexandre Dumas's Count and Red Beard's hidden pirate treasure, are within relatively easy reach.
The Argentario golf course and spa hosts some of the most important golf tournaments in Tuscany and indeed in Italy. It was designed by the architect David Mezzacane and the professional golfer Balsovino Dassù and opened in 2006. It has a panoramic 18-hole course, which is certified organic eco-compatible and all of the products used in maintaining the golf course are completely natural. In addition to the wonders of the course itself, the Argentario Golf Academy also boasts a staff of experienced professionals and a TrackMan simulator for swing analysis.
The estate owners can easily arrange transfers to and from the nearest international airports in Pisa, Perugia and Rome. The Orbetello Nature Reserve on the coast is a 20 minute drive and the beaches and golf course around Santo Stefano less than 30 minutes away. Punta Ala is about an hour's drive.
